I couldnt believe it. SO as i was paying for my items i told the girl at the register about it. But who knows if they did anything about. I was so sad all night thinking of those poor babies. It makes me not wanna shop there any more and im there a lot. So I really hope that girl spoke up to a manager or someone and the chicks were tended to.
*Im glad you saved your little fluff ball and that manager handled it well*
Oh my gosh! That is terrible. Let's hope that someone purchased them and cleaned them up. Poor things.

Congrats on the new chicky and for saving her life. You did the right thing and so did that manager.
Oh this is why I love BYC! I searched wing sexing and this forum is full of info. Let me try to find some for you. It works best on chicks that are 1 to 4 days old, but not all chicks. Be careful if you google search "chick sex"

Chicken Picken... pleeeeease call the store location you went to that had the pasty butts and follow up with a manager. Or, post the location and I'll call them. It's only a phone call. Poor chicks! Why don't they have people selling these things that know something about them??
I know that wiping a lil chicks bum is not a glamorous thing, but it's part of the responsibility that is assumed when you are dealing with chicks.
It never hurts to tell them that there is a sick one...or to ask for a discount because it's sick.
Pffft....I am already wiping a few of my Marans' bums! What's one more?
